Sony Xperia C, Xperia L, Xperia M and Xperia SP Not to Receive Android KitKat Update

By | September 12, 2014


Sony has revealed that a slew of its mid-range smartphones will not be receiving any firmware updates beyond the current version of Android Jelly Bean that they are based on. The devices in question include Xperia M, Xperia M Dual, Xpeia SP, Xperia L ands Xperia C. Of these handsets, the Xperia L and Xperia C are based on v4.2 and v4.2.2 Jelly Bean, whereas the others are based on v4.3 Jelly Bean.

The decision of Sony appears to be puzzling as all these smartphones have 1 GB of RAM and dual-core Krait processors that are sufficient for the Android 4.4.4 KitKat platform to sail through smoothly.

Moreover, the Japanese vendor rolled out the Android 4.4.4 KitKat update to a lineup of smartphones including the Xperia L, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR and Xperia Tablet Z. But, Sony has not revealed the complete official change-log that would be brought about by the update.



Also, last week the firm announced the launch of a slew of devices including Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, SmartBand Talk and SmartWatch 3 at the pre-IFA 2014 event held in Berlin. Furthermore, the vendor also unveiled a couple of new lens-style cameras dubbed E-mount ILCE-QX1 and DSC-QX30 that are priced at $350 and $400 respectively.
